InGaAs camera

C12741-03

The C12741-03 is an InGaAs camera with sensitivity in the near infrared region from 950 nm to 1700 nm.
It has a USB 3.0 interface port which supports 14 bit image acquisition and exposure time adjustment. This makes the C12741-03 ideal for use in a wide range of applications including internal inspection of silicon wafers and devices, laser beam alignment and evaluation of solar cells.

Features

  • High sensitivity in the near infrared region
  • Resolution: 640 × 512 pixels
  • Low noise and high stability with cooling
  • Frame rate of approx. 60 frames/s

Applications

  • Internal inspections of silicon wafers and devices
  • Evaluation of solar cells
  • Evaluation and analysis of optical communication devices
  • EL/PL image acquisition

Software

Our software provides the interface to access all of our carefully engineered camera features, from simply setting exposure to orchestrating complex triggering for multidimensional experiments.

We have designed a Software API to be used by all Hamamatsu digital cameras, named DCAM-API, and designed a Software Development Kit for the integration of Hamamatsu cameras with custom software.

Third party software

As imaging setups become more complex, software has to control not only a camera, but also many other devices such as microscopes, stages and filter wheels… Therefore, companies have integrated Hamamatsu DCAM based cameras into their software products.
